Garden warbler

Heysham Obs
A short mist netting session by the office was unusually quiet, but it doesn't help if the feeders have been empty for two days!  The absence of Common Whitethroat was particularly noticeable - the locals seem to have moved on with no migratory replacements

Garden Warbler was notable so early in the autumn - don't breed in this area, otherwise just a couple of Willow Warbler and a Robin ringed

After none in SD45 until two days ago (Middleton actinic), another Epinotia bilunana turned up in Heysham toilet trap this morning!

Updates for yesterday and today pic-wise definitely tomorrow - sorry Janet.
